High school career
Playing at New Boston High School in New Boston, Texas, Gladney was a three-star recruit and signed with Texas Christian University on February 5, 2015 after originally committing to the program on June 6, 2014. Gladney chose TCU over offers from North Texas, Northern Illinois, Rice, Texas State, Tulsa and UTSA.
Gladney redshirted his freshman year due to a torn ACL sustained during his senior year in high school, but then was a four-year starter at Texas Christian University. During his junior season, Gladney made waves as a cover corner, earning first team all-Big 12 Conference by Pro Football Focus and second team all-Big 12 by the coaches. Over his TCU career, he recorded five interceptions and was named to the 2020 Senior Bowl roster after his senior season as well as garnering first team all-Big 12 honors by the Associated Press.
NFL draft evaluators praised Gladney for his physical style of play.
